Your business is doing very well. But no one is happy with the current business application that drives key areas of your business. It’s a legacy system that is complex, old, and people have built workarounds to do their jobs efficiently.
You have options to consider. Replace this outdated software with an off-the-shelf product, or update the existing custom legacy application.
Replacing with an off-the-shelf product can feel overwhelming. Where to start? Just Googling similar products and sifting through the sales noise is a confusing experience. The price for the software is not clear. And buying an off-the-shelf product means giving up control over the unique processes that make your business special.
Updating the existing custom application is also a scary proposition. If no one has updated the legacy code in the past couple of years, the risk of it breaking could be high. And if the programming language used to write it is old, there may not be many people available who know how to perform a legacy system update.
If only you could keep your custom software. If only you could hold onto what makes it valuable and keeps your business unique while also gaining the flexibility to adapt quickly and go after new opportunities.
How do you do that? By modernizing your existing custom software application with your business goals in mind.
